You know what apparently isn't fair? Searching GITMO detainees in full when they're being transferred to speak to their attorneys (that you pay for).
A federal judge on Thursday ordered the military to stop touching the groins of detainees at the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, when they are moved from their cells to speak with lawyers. The procedure had led some prisoners to stop meeting with or calling their lawyers.
In a 35-page opinion, Judge Royce C. Lamberth, the chief judge of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia, called the searches — which included guards wedging their hands between the genitals and thighs of the detainees as many as four times when moving them to a meeting and back to their cells — “religiously and culturally abhorrent” to Muslims. He portrayed the procedure as unnecessary and intended to “actively discourage” meetings with lawyers.
He said the warden, Col. John Bogdan, must return to a longtime procedure in which guards shake the underwear of detainees by the band to dislodge any contraband, but do not to touch their buttocks or genitals.
But you know what is fair game? TSA touching your groin and buttocks at the airport thanks to the guys.... at GITMO. Miss USA 2003 knows all about it.
And here are a few other examples.
Susie Castillo was crowned Miss USA (not Miss America) back in 2003. She recently made a trip to Rio and on her return trip through Dallas was given a pat-down that she found both intrusive and upsetting. This is video of her describing what happened just a few minutes after the pat-down by a female TSA agent.
TSA said I was covered in explosives, took me to a private room and touched my vagina. So how was your day?— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 14, 2012
Yes. I am completely serious. TSA agent touched my vagina in a private screening area with the front of her hand.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 14, 2012
"She's going to touch her groin"And here is a TSA agent putting her hands inside the pants of a six-year old child.
You get the point.
